Woman Police Officer Found Slain In Queens
NEW YORK (AP) _ An off-duty female police officer was found dead in a field, shot in the head and nude. Authorities said she may have been the victim of a carjacking.
Officer Milagros Johnson was found Wednesday near John F. Kennedy Airport. Her 1992-model car was found hours later several miles away in Brooklyn.
″A carjack is a possibility, a robbery is a possibility,″ said Inspector Larry Loesch.
Johnson, 25, was shot three times in the head by a 25-caliber pistol, said police Lt. Richard Kuberski.
She was found eight hours after leaving a bar where she was socializing with other off-duty officers, Kuberski said.
She was the daughter of the late William Johnson, a former director of the city’s civilian complaint review board, said police spokesman Sgt. John McCluskey.
